We are sorry to inform you that the places of the seminar have now been covered.

You may still apply for our waiting list, in case of any cancellations.

Do we make the best out of scientific analysis in conservation projects?

"VIADUCT" is a two-day seminar, dealing with how characterization and dating analysis can be successfully integrated in any conservation project of the Built Heritage. The main aim of this seminar is to help scholars of different disciplines understand in practice the importance of the effective use of scientific analysis, the necessity of integrating it with all context analyses, and finally the crucial role of interdisciplinary dialogue making the best out of each analysis.

The seminar will be developed with brief lectures but mainly with team exercises, round tables and discussions.

First day: Selecting, preparing and ordering one or more analyses. When, how and why?

Second day: Interpretation of analysis data. What do we expect, what do we get?

At the closure of the seminar there will be an open presentation of the deliverables of “VIADUCT, a communication tool for scientific analysis in heritage” namely a handbook and a website.

The seminar is organized by DIADRASIS in collaboration with CNCPC-INAH of Mexico and the Directorate of Conservation of Ancient & Modern Monuments of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports.

"VIADUCT research project" is funded by the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation Funding 2015 programme.
